Tea, Anyone?

I'm off to PLA in Boston next week. I haven't been there before, so I'm particularly excited. What's dragging me down, though, is figuring out how to get my schedule into the blasted Blackberry. What would be incredibly useful is the ability to download a customized program schedule from the PLA website to Outlook, and then dump it into the Blackberry. Voila... a nice, neat, paper-free way to keep track of which program I'm supposed to be attending at 8 a.m. on Thursday, after some breakfast waffles. What I did in the meantime was to copy and paste into a Word doc to see it all laid out, and then I'll copy the final schedule into Outlook. Kind of a pain but I think it'll work. How do you organize your conference schedules? Chisel it out on a rock? Roll it up in a scroll? Print out 20 pieces of paper? Wait for the 40-pound conference schedule and then go crazy with the highlighter?
